15 Network Move Wagering Goal Posts

Posted by: BingoGal - Tuesday, Nov. 10th 2015 7:16 AM

As our readers will know, we have our very own brand on the 15 Network called Tidy Bingo. We’re proud of our site and much love has been poured into it over the two years since launch in August 2013. We were the first brand to launch a standalone room and are the most prolific when it comes to exclusive promotions for our players. However, a recent network change has left us disheartened and disappointed.

Without prior notice, the powers that be in their bingo ivory tower made the decision to increase the wagering required before first withdrawal from £30 to £100, a change that we are currently trying to get overturned at Tidy Bingo.

We believe very strongly that such a steep increase is unfair on the players and whilst it has been suggested that this will improve our revenue, it has little relevance to us and the ethos of Tidy Bingo.

Of course it’s great to make a bit of money at the end of each month, we’re a business after all BUT we want players to be treated fairly and able to withdraw funds that they have won legitimately.

Since we started in this industry, we have been player advocates and this change by the 15 Network is one that leaves a nasty taste in our mouths.

We shall continue trying to get the £30 minimum wager before withdrawal reinstated at Tidy Bingo, it’s a deal breaker for us and our brand but the process takes time so please, bear with us.

Please note: This change has been implemented on ALL brands on the 15 Network – a full list of which can be found here.

Of the list, we are aware of three other brands that are currently trying to have the £30 minimum wagering before withdrawal reinstated – they are:

  • Flog It Bingo
  • Film Bingo
  • Bingo Hombre

Like www.tidybingo.com, these brands are not happy with the changes made. With that said, the stance of the network currently appears to be that they are unchanged in the opinion of the change and even if they were to allow some brands to choose their own minimum wagering, how long the implementation will take.

Suffice to say, we aren’t holding out much hope.
